Collectively these concepts provide a values framework for assessing and analysing risks and harms as part of the exercise of looking over the horizon (see also Leiss and Hrudey 2005; White 2008a). 2 provides a summary of these key ideas. The challenge for eco-global criminology is to marshal ideas and evidence from many different sources and disciplines in order to identify where harms and risks are emerging as matters of possible social and political importance, and to develop pre-emptive strategies to begin to address potential problems before they create further harms and risks pertaining to humans, environments and animals.
